"The poems in Consolation Prize render the traumas of premature infant death and car wrecks into a beautiful music of grief and relatedness. The verses brim with imagination and wit, and, like the benevolent shark that appears in one of the poems, they show us a way through an unfixable human condition."
"These poems are a journey into the dark space between life and human understanding of life. They explore trauma in delicate and yet deft ways, with a deep understanding of what it means to be human, imperfect, and broken but yet whole. A powerful little collection."
